I am looking for a new graphics card in the range of an GTX-760 SC to a GTX-770 SC (or something in between). The GTX-670 SC & 7970 are also in this range. My choices for the GTX-760 SC are the MCI GAMING & HAWK and the EVGA GeForce GTX760 SC w/EVGA ACX.
I am uncertain which brand to buy.

Hi,
The HD7950 is just below the range of graphics cards that I'm looking at. It is frustrating. I am leaning toward the GTX 760, but at the same time I have doubts that I will be satisfied with the the card. It was rumored to be more of an improved GTX 670, but it isn't. And even though the GTX 670 is being replaced, the prices haven't fallen that much. Otherwise, the GTX 670 SC would be more of an option.

the GeForce GTX 760 features a core
configuration never implemented on a retail
SKU. It's based on the same 28 nm GK104
silicon, but features just six of the chip's eight
streaming multiprocessors, which translates
into a configuration with 1,152 CUDA cores
and 96 texture memory units (TMUs). Unlike
with the GTX 660 Ti, NVIDIA left the memory
and raster operations subsystems untouched,
giving the chip a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory
interface and 32 ROPs.
The chip features new GPU Boost 2.0
technology, which takes temperature into
account, alongside power and loads.
So bro i'll say evga gtx 760sc is the best as it comes factory overclocked......

New 7xx series may have the advantage od newer architecture and better drivers effect on gameplay. About my opinion, if you can afford any distributor of the gtx 770, it will be a beast. It outperforms 7970 is some games( gtx 670 specs ). The thing is, Nvidia cards
, in general, operate at lower temperatures, have less power consumption, their drivers have MUCH BETTER effect than that of AMD. and the SLI beats CfX, as cfx has a lot of issues. On the other hand, AMD has very good game bundle with the card, 3Gb of vram (maybe more futureproof) and cheaper price/performance ratio. In my opinion, i would still go with the gtx 770(the evga with acx cooler is awesome, with evga best customer support and step up program http://www.evga.com/support/stepup/ ), the most important features to me is the sli and drivers. OMG i forgot, there is a possibility that your cpu would bottleneck either of these beast cards. List the rest of your rig so i can say to you.

Yeah it's not a new architecture tho, it's the same as the GTX6xx series ;)

Hi,
I like that they went back to the 256 bit memory bus on the GTX 760 (from the 192 bit.660Ti). I never thought much of the idea of creating a memory bottleneck as a marketing ploy.
I assume that the newer 700 series would have some pluses like Boost 2.0 that wouldn't be had in last years GPU's.

Ok, i was afraid that your cpu is not enough for the gpus mentioned and it will bottleneck, but its fine for nearly any gpu. I was also worried about your power supply, but its damn enough even for SLI. The thing that i dont understand is why are you asking about two gpus hd 7950 and gtx 760 which are inferior to the gtx 770, that you can get already. Did i get it wrong? To wrap it up for you, if you can get the gtx 770, ITS THE WINNER, if not, then the gtx 760 will be your second choice. About the brand, they all operate at nearly same temperatures, biggest difference i saw was 5C while under load(gaming) but the eVGA features the best customer service + strp up program (it has regional restrictions), so i wish i answered all of your questions, if you have any more, just say list them and i will be glad to help (:
